 Experience the wisdom of GRATITUDE;

 Uncover & discover TRUTH, FREEDOM & JOY !

4th – 6th February 2016

TAO OF GRATITUDE retreats are specifically designed as an intimate, intensive, nurturing, compassionate space for WOMEN to identify, investigate, expose and integrate all stories, beliefs, shame & body stored traumas.

What concepts and thoughts are you believing?

What stories, shame, traumas & dramas are being stored in your cellular memories ?

Are you willing and ready to transition from and resolve all the tension and stressful relation~ships which keep you from living FULLY FREE in the heart of each moment?

Are you currently or have you experienced ?
*difficult, incompatible “personal” relationships
*disturbing sense of self &/or body image
*insufferable grief and loss
*food &/or substance addictions
*sexual abuse, misuse or inhibition
*general lack of clarity
and any other unresolved stressors !
The vision is for us together, to co~create and hold a very supportive, compassionate place for women to explore their shadows in a forgiving, non judgmental environment opening up towards the realization of ultimate freedom and truth!
We will:
* Access the breath, beliefs & body as tools of liberation through BioDynamic Breath & Trauma Release, Self Inquiry with the The Work of Byron Katie & pelvic floor (root chakra) bodywork and release.
* Expose. Through supported, constructive and compassionate sharings, you will have the opportunity to expose the “stories” which keep you hidden inside the shadow. When revealed, this energy naturally integrates and turns into the light of presence.
* Be supported by dance, somatic experiencing, meditation & breath giving nature of the magical Bay.
You will be pointed to silence as your strongest ally for remembering your greatest birth gift of gratitude; this opens the heart for compassion and pure love.
No need to wait. Notice all the gratitude that is already here, when willing to unveil it.
The meeting of basic primal needs for safety and security are the foundation from which we understand and cultivate love. These needs when left untended to, from birth &/or through adolescence, will continue to sit in your roots as the source of all your confusion. Unconscious patterns of oppression and abuse from self and others may then continue to repeat throughout ones life experiences. We will re~start at the foundational roots with self~care, self~nurture and the art of self~satisfying/meeting these basic primal needs.
